Application Tools
  • Save – save as you type your application
    • This does not submit application, just saves application so you can go back later and make more changes
  • Finish – you will be asked to check a box stating that you have completed your application then click the “Finish” button to submit

Application Tips

  • You must submit the application. Saving the application does not submit it.
  • Once you have submitted the application, you cannot make any changes.
  • We highly recommended you create your application in Word so that you can keep a copy. This ensures that you have your work if you encounter computer problems while working in the online system!

Application Tips

  • Make sure you spell check your work.
  • “Application Question” in the banner area can be used for questions about application content or the Top 100 process. You may also email
  • “Contact the Help Desk” in the banner area of the website can be used to report any technical issues.
  • When you use either email tool, please include your name and email address as part of the message so we can follow-up with you.

Top 100 Selection


  • The Top 100 will be determined by the Round 1 judges.
  • All students will be notified around December 4 of the round 1 results

Only the Top 100 students will continue to the second round of judging, which includes recommendations. This round determines the Top 10 Men, Top 10 Women and Most Outstanding student winners.



  • If you are named to the Top 100, you will be asked to solicit up to three recommendations.
  • We suggest using two faculty/staff members. The third recommendation can be a friend, advisor, mentor or coach, etc. (Faculty/staff members serving on the second voting committee cannot write recommendations.)
  • On the Top 100 site, you will need to submit an email address for those you’ve asked to submit a recommendation on your behalf.

Recommendations (continued)

  • The person making the recommendation will be contacted via email by the Top 100 system. They will be given a form to complete and submit electronically for your recommendation.
  • Any Butler faculty or staff member making the recommendation will be able to view your application.
  • We suggest the recommendations focus on student’s character, personality, work ethic, etc. Academic accomplishments are easily seen through honors, GPA, etc. on the application.

Recommendations (continued)

  • You will be able to see when recommendations are submitted on your behalf. It is up to you to make sure that you have all three of your recommendations turned in on time.
  • Recommendations are due February 1, 2010.

Outstanding Student Banquet

  • All students selected to the Top 100 will be invited to the Outstanding Student Banquet on April 9, 2010.
  • You will be asked to submit a list of guests (names and addresses) who you would like to invite to the banquet. Be sure to do this so your parents/guests get invitations.There is no limit on the number of guests you can invite. This event does cost $35 per person. However, the Top 100 honorees are guests of the alumni association.
